    Hi all
    Just want to drop a line here. Never had a salt water fish tank and been
    reading and learning for a few of months, just to see what it is going to be the
    effort and cost. (will try to make a fantastic FT with out breaking the bank)

    I will be installing a 250 or 300 gls. fish tank, not sure if I'm going to purchase a
    used one or to build me one to specific size.

    I usually like to learn and " do it myself ". so a lot of help and answers are going to be
    need it.
    Thanks in advance, and looking forward to the community and the forum

    Best .
    Ed

    I am pretty new myself, but I welcome you.

    I am building my first aquarium and this forum has been priceless in the help they offer. I ventured into this with a similar requirement: build a cool tank and don't blow my budget:) With the help of the people on here you'll save a lot of time and money and get a great aquarium.
